Robot remote control is a major subfield of robotics. It has many potential applications, such as remote production monitoring, remote exploration and manipulation in dangerous environments, tele-surgery and tele-teaching, etc. This paper proposes an approach to develop a robot remote control system by combining the 3D graphical model of the robot and the environment with the web based control software. The 3D graphical model of the environment and the robot is to get a more realistic interface which can help the user to remotely control the robot or part of the robot, such as the arm, for easier manipulation.
